The gold standard approach for treating almost all forms of addiction has become Alcoholics Anonymous. Alcoholics Anonymous or AA groups can be found in states across America. Since its inception in 1935, the group support therapy has since grown to become the world’s most popular mutual assistance organization with one million-plus members in more than 100,000 groups from over 150 countries worldwide. Brookfield AA meetings have been set up to help residents from Brookfield, a village in Cook County, Illinois, to get support for their drinking problems. AA has become so popular that it has been emulated by many addictions and compulsive behavior rehabilitation groups including Narcotics Anonymous and Debtors Anonymous. AA empowers its members to hold themselves accountable for their addiction and take full responsibility for their recovery through its 12-Steps program. By using prayer and meditation, the program also encourages members to aim for a spiritual transformation. Each member is encouraged to read what is known as the ‘bible’ of the organization – “The Big Book,” which is a great source for inspiring stories and tools for recovery.
